How Beauty, Love and Action Interact

From Denny: The famous Persian poet, Rumi, was a nobleman and great scholar of the 13th century. He met a wandering famous spiritual teacher named Shams who mentored Rumi about mysticism. Rumi was clearly transformed by the intense relationship. His poetry reflects the inner journey of discovery and reunion with God that, like any true mystic, transcends specific religion.

Peonies, like those in the photo and Rumi's inspiration from his poems, are complex flowers of many interlocking petals, yet unfurl into something incredibly beautiful! A European friend once paid me the greatest compliment to compare me to a peony and it has remained her nickname for me ever since...

“Let the beauty that you love be what you do.” - Rumi
